What are ways to prevent forklift accidents?

How dangerous is a moving forklift? According to Prolift, the average weight of a forklift is nine thousand pounds, plus a forklift can reach speeds of six to twelve miles per hour. However, since forklifts often work in the vicinity of Illinois pedestrians, this machine can present a life threatening hazard to a person who is not aware of a forklift's presence. Proper safety measures, however, can help prevent a tragic accident.

What are ways to help workers lift heavy objects?

In an Illinois workplace where you handle heavy objects and loads, in many instances it is a bad call to try and move something by yourself. Even if you understand how to properly lift a heavy object, some loads are simply too much for your arms alone. Attempting to lift such loads can injure your back and put you on the mend for a long time. That is why workplaces should equip their workers with tools and vehicles that can cut down the risk of workplace injury.
